Bar Somehow Thought It Was A Good Idea To Create A Drink Called The “Pill Cosby”

(PCM) A Washington, D.C. bar called Diet Starts Monday is facing a lot of internet backlash after someone came up with the brilliant idea to create an alcoholic drink called the “Pill Cosby” and it pretty much managed to offend just about everyone!

The “Pill Cosby” was a tequila-based drink that was … get this … actually garnished with fake floating pill capsules! Seriously! We have no clue who thought this was a good idea. Did they not recall that actor Bill Cosby faced accusations of sexually assaulting and drugging at least sixty women?  That is definitely not a situation to make light of, even if they were just trying to be tongue-in-cheek.

One of the bar’s co-founders attempted to diffuse the situation by saying that the drink was meant to be a statement on rape culture and told the Washingtonian that “it lets people be a little more aware”, but no one is buying that and folks on both social media and Yelp continue to be outraged.

The offending “Pill Cosby” drink has since been pulled from the bar’s menu and they have issued an apology to any patrons who may have been offended posting the following tweet:

Lattes Are Now Being Served In An Avocado, Because Why Not?

(PCM) We all know that avocado’s are the “it” thing these days and they are slowly becoming harder and harder to come by as they are growing more expensive, but people will still find new and creative ways to consume avocado’s, but we think perhaps an latte being served in an avocado really takes the cake.

Melbourne, Australia’s Truman Café is doing just that with their creation called the “avolatte” and it is basically just your typical latte order made to order in a hollowed out avocado. We can’t really see how this would enhance the taste of a latte, in fact, mixing avocado and coffee just doesn’t seem like a good pairing, but hey, to each their own!

Some claim that the bitterness of the avocado and the sweetness of the latte balance each other out, but others are still on the fence about whether or not this is actually a good idea! Just when we thought we had seen it all the “avolatte” arrives and it seems to be around to stay (or at least until the hipsters become fixated on something else).

People Are Angered Over Company’s Fat-Shaming Meal Planners

(PCM) Everyone is in an uproar over the release of meal planners and food journals from a UK -based stationary company called Fox & Moon which feature messages that could easily be construed as fat-shaming and bullying. The company is calling these messages printed on the planners and journals “sassy”, but everyone else begs to differ.

Women haven enough issues with body image these days, so having meal planners and food journals that feature phrases such as “I want to skinny dip, not chunky dunk”, “Stop rewarding yourself with food, you are not a dog!” and “Stick to the plan, piggy!”, these are far from positive affirmations and can truly do more harm than good.

Many fear that these types of message being printed on meal planners and food journals, which are supposed to assist in a good way with healthy eating and weigh-loss, defeat the entire purpose. One journal was actually printed with the phrase “stop bloody eating” and this kind of advice could lead many straight into an eating disorder.

By printing these offensive affirmations on the planners and journals the company is actually acting as a bully and shaming women into feeling like they need to lose weight in order to feel desirable and succeed in life. This could not be further from the truth. There is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight and eat healthy, but there is a better way to go about it than this!

Something tell us that the Fox & Moon company will be quickly yanking these meal planners and food journals from their inventory very soon, but we say too late! The damage is already done and they should be ashamed of themselves!

Skittles Releases An Incredibly Creepy Commercial In Time For Mother’s Day

(PCM) Mother’s Day is right around the corner and Skittles has released what is probably one of the creepiest commercials we have ever seen just in time to celebrate mom’s special day. Seriously, it is downright disturbing, but then again, Skittles has been known to take some weird risks when it comes to their advertising campaigns.

This commercial actually makes us feel less likely to purchase any Skittles as a Mother’s Day treat, even if it was our mother’s favorite candy! It takes the concept of a mother/son bond to an entirely new level and in a really odd way.

Now it’s time to go wash this Skittles commercial from our brains … forever! See it below, but we warned, once you see it, it can never been unseen … proceed with caution!

Cloud Eggs Are The Latest Food Trend And Are Surprisingly Easy To Make!

(PCM) Cloud Eggs, otherwise known as Eggs In A Cloud is the newest “it” food to take over our social media feeds, especially on Instagram, which can be a foodies paradise!

While the Cloud Eggs look like they would be fairly complicated to make, in reality they are really pretty simplistic. They are created by separating the egg yolk from the egg white and the egg white is then whipped, formed into a cloud shape and placed on parchment paper in the over to bake. It is then baked again for a few more minutes with the egg yolk sitting on top once it has hardened enough.

That’s really all there is to it! Home cooks claim that Cloud Eggs have been around for quite some time, however they are just now beginning to gain steam and pop up on several restaurant menus across the country. Once again the power of social media and the internet speaks volumes.

A few recipes claim that you can even add a dash or two of Parmesan cheese to the Egg Clouds to give them even more consistency, but it is not necessary to make them turn out delicious either way.  Because the egg whites are baked they can taste very similar to bread, but without the added calories. You are almost creating the illusion of a full breakfast sandwich. You can also add things such as bacon bits and other types of cheese or seasoning if you so desire, as the recipe is fully customizable to your own tastes! It’s fantastic and we can’t wait to give these Egg Clouds a try!

Bagel Chain Introduces Caffeinated Coffee Bagels

(PCM) Colorado-based bagel chain Einstein Bros have recently revealed their newest creation with the Espresso Buzz Bagel and it promises a morning wake-up call. The new bagel is chock full of caffeine, 32 mg to be exact, which is equal to about a third of the amount that is in a standard cup of coffee. While the Espresso Buzz bagel may not give you the same pick-up as your full cup of coffee, it certainly works as a grab and go option for something a little different.

In addition to the caffeine the Espresso Buzz Bagel features 13 grams of protein and the chain claims that the caffeine that makes up the bagel is sourced from both espresso and coffee-cherry flour. As coffee lovers, we are just curious about the taste. It looks like it would be pretty good, but sometimes looks can be a bit deceiving. The new bagel is part of Einstein Bros. new line of Boosted Bagels, which feature unique and innovative recipes.

The Espresso Buzz bagel is one of three bagel options that are currently available right now. The others include the sweet, oat-topped Cherry Chia Bagel and the Savory Parm Bagel and the company plans to introduce even more additional options in the future. While the company claims that the Boosted Bagels will only be available for a limited time, if they sell well enough the company doe say they will consider making them a permanent menu option.
